CAUTION! 

 

At this time, some of our playground equipment is not safe for our children to play on.  We have put warning signs up and have taped off the equipment.  The maintenance department is working to make the playground safe for the children.  Thank you for your patience and understanding.

pop tabs

POP TABS

 

To many, a pop tab is just a piece of aluminum with one purpose – to open a can. But to Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Indiana, these teeny tiny pop tabs are a valuable resource. Why? Collected pop tabs are recycled, generating much-needed funds to support the House and the nearly 5,000 families we serve each year.

Funds received from the recycling of tabs typically add up to between $30,000 and $50,000 annually.  All this money goes to the operating expenses of the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Indiana and can cover the cost of operating 3 rooms in the House for an entire year.

Thanks to generous school children, families, businesses, clubs, and churches, over one billion pop tabs have been donated since the program's inception in 1995, generating more than $700,000 in pop tab revenue for the House.

 

Please continue to send in your pop tabs!  

 

Counselor's corner with paw print

October is National Bullying Prevention Month! Throughout the end of September and early October, I went into each classroom to teach students about bullying and what they can do if they find themselves in a bullying situation. My role as the School Counselor is to educate all students on bullying and intervene wherever I can to make sure all students are supported and safe. All of our students, staff, and parents/guardians play a vital role in stopping bullying behaviors and making our school a more positive place!

TSC Alerts & Notifications, buses with snow

Stay informed of weather delays and closings


Snow, fog and other conditions can cause a delay to the start of our school day. Make sure you are signed up for TSC alerts and notifications so you will be informed about a change in the regular school schedule.

Families can receive instant messages via email or text from the TSC through our website. Click on the "Parents" tab at the top and look for the link to "TSC Alerts & Notifications" with instructions on how to create an account. Make sure you are signed up for the "TSC alerts, delays and closings" option, not just for your school's news and alerts.

A delay or cancellation will also be posted on our websites. You will get a pop-up message as soon as you go to the TSC or any TSC school website.

TSC officials notify numerous media outlets if there has been a change to the regular school schedule. These media outlets include, but are not limited to, 105.3 FM-WKOA, 98.7 FM-WASK, WLFI-TV 18, 96.5 FM-WAZY, Journal & Courier and Indianapolis TV stations.

Several factors are considered when making the decision to delay or cancel school. They include road conditions, temperatures, the ability to safely operate buses and the condition of our buildings and parking lots. To learn more, check out the responses to these Frequently Asked Questions.

notes from the nurse with apple and nurse hat

Dear parents,

 

As we approach winter and flu season, we wanted to send a reminder with simple hints to help prevent the spread of illness.  You can reduce your child's chance of being infected or infecting others by:

·         washing hands often with soap and water

·         coughing and sneezing into crook of elbow or sleeve

·         cleansing hands after blowing nose

·         not touching your eyes, nose, or mouth

·         avoiding close contact with people who are sick

·         staying home when you are vomiting or have a fever

·         Not sharing drinks and food with other

Please share these tips with your children!  Thank you in advance for your assistance!

 

As a reminder, do not send medication to school with your student!

headphones and earbuds

Headphone and earbuds

 

Students are all given one set of headphones or ear buds to start each school year. It's part of the annual curricular supplies you pay at registration. The strange thing is that we are having more and more of these headphones come up damaged. The culprit? Teeth. Students are chewing on the wires as they work which eventually causes them not to function as they should. Students received their first pair at the beginning of the school year but we are asking parents to replace these headphones for your individual children when they are broken or lost. Please speak with your child and see if he/she needs a new set of headphones. You don't need anything fancy, but the cost of these replacements continue to mount and if we work together - home and school - we can make these habits change and also ensure your child has headphones or ear buds to assist with school technology use.
